Re: waterproof cover recommendations?

I got a Kata E-702 recently.

It's easy to use and seems to protect the camera well. I was able to see the lcd and use the viewfinder through the clear plastic: http://www.thedigitalcamerashop.co.uk/product_details.php?id=2525

The problem with any rain cover however is that you still need to leave the front of the lens exposed which will then get raindrops on it - I was using mine with a Sigma 10-20 wide angle lens which doesn't have a deep lens hood and I found myself forever wiping the lens clear on the occasions when I tried to photograph in steady rain fall.

It would probably work a lot more effectively on lenses which have deeply recessed hoods.
